    4th Annual Jingle Bell 8K Run, 8K Virtual Run & 5K Walk, 5K Virtual Walk

    As we all steer through 2020 as best we can it's an understatement to say things have been difficult! I believe everyone has found a way to navigate these trying times.  The Whitehall Jingle Bell run committee has been brainstorming to have an IN PERSON run and walk for all the peeps out there that NEEDS to get out and run or walk.  We also want to be mindful to our peeps that still want to RUN and WALK but in the comfort of their surroundings! 

    This years Jingle Bell Run/Walk will be a HYBRID to include both!  We will have a staggered start time for runners based on your pace.  We will expect everyone to adhere to CDC guidelines, wear masks and stay 6 feet apart!  You will be able to remove your mask at the start line when you go off.  The walkers will be staggered as well with the same protocols. 

    The Run will start at 9AM and you will be chipped timed from the moment you start and to the moment you stop!   
    Rolling start from 9am until all runners have cleared the starting area.  1 runner will start every 20 seconds, and never more than 1 person at the start line at a time. Masks are to be worn up until runners start and after they finish, they are not required to wear a mask during the race. All other social distancing protocols will be required pre and post race.

    Walkers are NOT timed and we will stagger walkers after the last runner goes off.  Walkers that are family and friends are welcome to walk together. 

    Virtual Runners - You can join in the fun by starting your run at 9AM and texting your results to our Chip Timers (more details to follow).  You are eligible to receive a shirt but not eligible for cash awards.

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.
